Internal Migration Flows
Human mobility continues to increase in terms of volumes and reach, producing growing global connectivity. Quantifying and modeling human migration can contribute towards a better understanding of the nature of migration and help develop evidence-based interventions for disease control policy, economic development, and resource allocation. WorldPop has worked to pair census microdata from multiple low and middle income countries with additional geospatial datasets to develop models for internal migration flows, including key drivers that reflect the changing social, demographic, economic, and environmental landscapes. These have been applied to map internal migration for all low and middle income countries, with the datasets available to download here, and methods described in Sorichetta et al and Garcia et al.
